Deep ruby red colour, intense aromas of roses and ripe red fruit, spices such as pepper and leather notes. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long finish. The wine is aged for 24 months in new oak barrels and matures for a further six months in bottle. It can be kept for another 10 years or more. The grape variety used for this wine is 100% 'thanasis experiment'. The new red grape variety is made to Thanassis Papaioannou's standards and named after him, by researcher Pantelis Zamanidis and the Vine Institute of Athens. Thanasis used his vast knowledge and experience to produce and care for this new grape variety. A very special wine with a circulation of 1,000 bottles a year.
Perfect with red meat, grilled or cooked lamb and meat with red spicy sauces.
Thanasis Papaioannou is one of the first producers who understood and promoted the idea that wine must maintain its unique characteristics. These characteristics come of the grape variety, the vineyards location as well as the procedures, which are followed by the viticulturist - producer for the sake of a biological balance. The family has private owned vineyards in various locations of Nemea and the chosen grape varieties are cultivated with the aim of achieving ultimate harmony with the eco system.
Mr. Papaioannou's son, George, a chemist - oenologist, continues the tradition and is as creatively active in his own vineyards as in the modern winery of the Ancient Nemea. The goal of both individuals is the continuous improvement of the wines produced, the maintenance of high standards of hygiene and organic characteristics as well as experimentation on new types of wines. The size of the vineyard - 57 hectars - the various vineyards plots in areas of the zone, which are characterized by differences in the ecosystem and the age of the vines, lead to a multi - dynamic result.
The quality of the result is enhanced by the correct selection of a satisfactory number of varieties and the profound knowledge of its pioneers about everything that is related to the vineyard and its cultivation. The Papaioannou family is therefore also known as the best winemaker in Nemea!
